Teacher
Louise Oppenheimer-Flax

Origami conquers the fabric arts once again! Based on the designs of the Florida tribe, this sewing technique uses repositioning of designs to create even more designs. Louise will show you how to adapt this method to paper and origami. Here’s a chance for origami quilt fans to learn a new technique.

Flying Birds

Date and time

Teacher
Donna Walcavage

Gee Donna, don’t most birds fly? Unfortunately, there are few origami birds that actually fly. Fortunately, Donna has spotted some of these rarities and will share them with you, including a gull and a bittern, plus more. Time will not be the only thing flying in this class, so get your folding fingers and throwing arm ready.

Cake/triangular Box with Rose Motif

Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Sandra Richman

Yum, yum, yum. I want a piece of that cake! Sandy has cleverly transformed Tomoko Fuse’s triangular box into a culinary masterpiece. Each slice is a triangular box out of 7 pieces of paper (3 for the top, 3 for the bottom and one for the rose decoration. She will provide enough paper for an entire cake and some for practice, but you’ll probably complete only a few slices during class.

Two-faced Flower

Sunday, November 6, 2016, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Candace Paska

I thought only pansies have faces. But no, this versatile modular flower shows two faces. When made from 6 modules, the model is flat a perfect for greeting cards. When made from 5 modules, it becomes 3D and can be used for any decoration. It is particularly lovely made out of 3-inch patterned paper, which will be provided.

Clever, cute and cool! This imaginative and beautiful model features a color change for the bow and has a wonderful folding sequence. Add a splash of color to your next festive gathering; they make a terrific party favor candies and other treats. This was a popular model at the recent Convention.

Origami models that move are always fun! Join Wendy to make origami that jump, fly, and spin. This class is a great opportunity for families to explore the magic of origami together. No experience is necessary. For children ages 8 and up. Adults without children are also welcome!

Modular Stars

Date and time
Sunday, November 6, 2016, 2:30 to 4:30 pm
Level
Low Intermediate
Teacher
Huy Voun Lee

My, aren’t you a brilliant folder? You can be, with these stunning modular stars. The Spiral Star is fairly simple despite its complex appearance and makes a great hanging with a paper clip and string. The Star Within a Star requires familiarity with the diamond base. Huy invented this while on the Q train, so who says a commute has to be boring.

Simplified Chinese Sewing Kit

Date and time
Sunday, November 6, 2016, 2:30 to 4:30 pm
Level
Low Intermediate
Teacher
Rachel Katz

It’s rather like a cabinet of curiosities. Or imagine presenting gifts of money, flat origami models, gift certificates, chocolate coins, etc. in this series of 7 cleverly connected boxes (no cutting or glue needed). This attractive “Chinese Sewing Kit” can also be used for jewelry, findings, beads as well as sewing notions.

Triangle Twist

Date and time
Sunday, November 6, 2016, 2:30 to 4:30 pm
Level
Low Intermediate
Teacher
Nathan Ascher

That’s out of one piece of paper?! Tessellations are awesome but also more than a bit daunting for those new to this technique. This class is intended for people who have always wanted to fold tessellations but have never had the opportunity (or courage) to learn how to turn a grid into a textured model. Learn techniques to fold a triangle grid quickly and accurately, then turn it into the Triangle Twist.

Modulars from Centerfold

Date and time
Sunday, November 6, 2016, 2:30 to 4:30 pm
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Wesley Damgo

Missed the Ohio convention? Not to worry; Wesley will teach two 6 to 10-unit modulars by Ekaterina Lukasheva that impressed at Centerfold. The Patricia unit and its variations is a family of modular with 60 degree angles. With these models, it’s all about the math. Who says math can’t be fun? Be prepared for some tricky assembly.
